Hello Sydney

February 26, 2010 · 6 comments

The final day of the adventure and our progression to Batemans Bay last night paid off as the highway direct to Sydney was closed due to an oil tanker which crashed (unfortunately resulting in the death of a family skidding on the oil) the previous night on Princes Highway.
Queue a 400km diversion (as there is a national park with only an unsealed road through which I thought was best to skip as it wouldn’t be any faster in the Mystery Machine) almost via Canberra (time was too short to pay it a visit).

We passed a town called Tarago, which is the model of Toyota we have been driving which was pretty cool, although there is virtually no attractions there.

Finally, after 20 days, 200 dead kangaroos, 1 Emu, Alex’s snoring, over 6000km, a broken starter motor, countless Germans, glorious beaches, and one crazy 100 year old Irish man, the adventure came to an end. Relieved to be staying around a friends house, with a shave, shower and sh!t it was time to bring in the year 2010 from Sydney in style.

Showers are totally underrated to people who have them daily!

Am going to North Sydney beaches shortly on my trip up the east coast. The ones South of Sydney are nice though, in fact Australia is just full of nice beaches, it’s actually more of a challenge to find a bad one.
